Trade winds hold steady for the rest of the week

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - It is feeling quite nice! Lucky we live Hawaii! Moderate to breezy northeast trade winds will prevail through Thursday, then ease into the light to moderate range Friday through Saturday as a band of moisture associated with a dissipated front moves through from north to south. Windward shower coverage will remain limited into Friday due to the cool and dry pattern in place, but should trend up Friday night into Saturday as the band of moisture arrives. Increasing moisture and a warmer pattern is expected early next week as the trade winds shift to a more typical easterly direction on Sunday, then out of the east-southeast early next week.

Let’s talk surf! A small northwest swell will subside through Wednesday night. A moderate, shorter-period north swell expected Thursday may persist through next weekend. Lighter than normal trade winds will keep surf small along east facing shores through mid-week. The north swell will wrap in to some east facing shores later in the week. Swells from distant southern hemisphere storms will produce small to moderate surf along south facing shores.
